Shinshinim Visiting Montreal

The Shinshin program was on hiatus during the COVID-19 pandemic, but will resume in 2021-22. We look forward to welcoming a shinshin to our community.

Temple will be participating in the Shinshinim program for the sixth year in 2021-22. The Shinshinim program arrived in Montreal in 2015. Six Israeli teens will spend the year in between high school graduation and their service in the Israeli Army, (the IDF), volunteering at more than 26 organizations and programs across the Montreal Jewish community, strengthening the relationship between Montreal and Israel. These outstanding young people undergo a rigorous selection process; our Shinshinim are always interesting, talented and open to experiencing life in Montreal. The Shinshinim live with host families while serving our community. If you might be interested in hosting a Shinshin, contact Rabbi Greenspan for more information.
